The Japanese newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun recently reported that by the end of this year a new Wii Fit will be released in Japan. This would confirm the rumors that Nintendo recently patented the name Wii Fit Plus. They informed their readers that the game will measure balance and weight even more accurate and will support online connectivity. But Wii Fit Plus wasn’t the report that sparked the interest of the fans.
The newspaper also claimed that a new Mario game is in the making, and is set to be released in Japan by the end of this year. Sadly, very little other information was given, except that it’s a tool for Nintendo to push their Japanese Wii sales. If the newspaper is correct, we’ll hear from it very soon- at the E3.
